Convicted Ex-Soldier Damages His Cell

PADUCAH, Ky. (AP) - Jail officials are taking extra precautions with an ex-soldier convicted of rape and murder in Iraq after he caused a commotion in his jail cell.  

Steven D. Green was convicted Thursday in a fatal attack on an Iraqi family, and jurors are hearing evidence this week about whether to sentence him to death. Green became upset Saturday and threw a lunch tray when he wanted to shave but didn't have a razor.

The incident was first reported by The Paducah Sun on Wednesday. Chief Deputy Greg Garrison says after Green was cuffed and moved to another cell, he kicked glass out of a door.  

Green is not facing any additional charges, but jailers are now shackling his feet whenever he is moved.
